PORT McNEILL—Portside Academy of Performing Arts is taking registration for its 2012-13 performance season.

The dance studio will be open weekdays from 4-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon.

The school offers instruction in ballet, jazz/hip-hop, tap, musical theatre and contemporary dance, from pre-school through secondary school ages. Registration fees vary according to class level and number of classes taken.
